OmniPeace is a humanitarian fashion brand founded in 2007 by Mary Fanaro and based in Los Angeles, California. Each year, the brand donates a percentage of its profits to a charitable organization doing work in Africa. In 2005, after watching a Live 8 concert, Fanaro had the idea of introducing a food line called “Peace of Chocolate” whose profits would benefit initiatives to end African poverty. She later decided to create a clothing label.
